I'm getting the following error

Windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be
the cause. to fix the problem.

1.insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2.choose your language settings and then click "next"
3.click "repair your computer"

if you do not have this disc contact your system administrator or
computor manufacturer for assistance

File: /windows/system32/drivers/iastor.sys
Status: oxc00000e9
Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.


Does anyone know if this is fixable or not? If so i'd appericate help.
Thanks in advance.

iastor.sys file is often targeted by rootkits.
I suggest, you start new topic in malware forum and you simply state, that your computer is not bootable, so you can't post any logs.
